As the hospitality and hotel industry bounces back from a lull in travel due to COVID-19, the level of security threats to the industry will rise.

Hotel security leaders may look to video surveillance to upgrade their security posture to meet the increased threat levels. An eBook from IDIS outlines how security professionals can use video surveillance in hotels to prevent security risks from becoming realities.

The guide, "Seizing New Opportunities for Video Solutions in Hotels and Hospitality Settings," compares hotel settings and security equipment implementation potential throughout the United States.

Surveillance solutions can meet the security challenges presented by hotel environments, according to the eBook. With technology options designed for resorts and hotels, hotel security officers responsible for security management can maintain visibility over their properties and operations.

“As hotel owners and operators look to open new sites and upgrade aging infrastructure, it’s important that security is designed to deter, detect and defend without creating a fortress,” commented Jason Burrows, Regional Sale Director at IDIS America. “Now is also the right time to evaluate the transformational potential of deep-learning analytics, in what is becoming a fiercely competitive market.”
